Interviews consist of several rounds of phone and in-person interviews that culminate in a Super Saturday. This all-day event gathers many of your peers looking for similar positions and provides a good networking opportunity and chance to meet some of the people you might end up working with. There is an individual problem and a group case study but it really serves as an opportunity for you to learn about the company and absorb their culture

I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Sapient (Arlington, VA) in October 2013.
I went through two interviews, one on campus and another at their company building. The on-campus interview was very short and more oriented towards getting to know you and your background. A month later I was contacted to attend their on-site interview at Super Saturday, which is a day-long interview that consists of meeting people in the company, a group simulation exercise, and an individual coding interview.
- The group exercise was more difficult than expected because they asked that we take an hour to plan a solution to a case study and present it to a panel. They judged very harshly, as an actual client would. This part really tests you on your teamwork skills and your communication skills. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sapient (Arlington, VA) in April 2013.
Applied through university recruiting. Was contacted by HR for a phone screening, just to see that you're a normal person. I was then set up with a technical interview who was a Senior Associate Technology. Talked about my resume, a few behavioral questions, only lasted 45 minutes. I was then invited to a "Super Saturday" -- you would come in on a Saturday to meet with Sapient employees ranging from all positions. This has to be my favorite interview just because the environment was great, everyone was really nice, they seemed to really care about who they hire. There was a 4:1 ratio between employees and interviewees so there was a lot of attention directed towards the interviewees. There was a short presentation, which I thought was fairly humorous. A group presentation/interview where you're given a case study and you have to work in a team to come up with a solution. Then there is informal Q/A which consisted of your team and a few employees: ask questions, don't be afraid. Then I had an "Attributes Interview" which is really just a behavioral interview. I loved my interviewer, she seemed genuinely interested in my experiences. Then there was lunch where you pretty much sit wherever you want. Then an individual technical interview. Similar to the group, but you have to work on coding/designing an application fit for the situation/case study. Then there was a tour of the building/surrounding areas. Lastly, there was a closing ceremony where Sapient asks for feedback. Everything was great. Technical interview was a little intimidating, but that's because I'm not the best programmer out there. Overall, it was a great experience. I learned a lot about the company and really enjoyed meeting the team. When you're interviewing, you get a sense of how the company is, how the people who work there are and whether or not you'd fit in.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sapient (Arlington, VA) in October 2012.
college recruiting and one-on-one on-campus interview, followed by an invitation to a full one-day interview at the Arlington office. all 30ish college recruits passing the on-campus interview are invited to "Super Saturday", which includes social activities with current employees where they continuously judge your interactions and communications skills. personality is a big importance to getting an offer. Super Saturday also includes an individual case study and a group case study/presentation. intensely long and arduous procedure, but it also gave me a very in-depth taste of the company and its people.
- the group case study was the hardest part of the interview. but they expect you to fail. the bigger idea is for the company to see how to interact with a team and answer client questions. my group of four was given an hour to read a case study and plan its design process, and then we were grilled for half an hour by a mock client on its supposed layout and flaws.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sapient (Boston, MA) in November 2010.
The first interview was a resume screen + behavioral. It's key to show lots of enthusiasm because personality and "fit" is just as important as experience and intelligence. I got 2nd round which was an all day event with 3 interviews. One was a group exercise to show teambuilding skills, one was a case presentation (presented to 1 interviewer) and one was another behavioral interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sapient (Boston, MA) in April 2010.
Got recruited from through campus career fair. The interview process consisted of a phone interview, online technical test, one all day interview. Be prepared to be grilled all day, as long as you stay calm and confident and if you are good at thinking on the fly, you will do well. The all day interview started with a case study that I had an hour to prepare for, then presented it to two people (got asked a lot of questions). Next was a 1:1 interview with basic personality assessment questions. The third, and final interview consisted of a group case study where I was paired up with two other candidates.
